1Apply

Use the Online Application to apply for admission to FCC. This is the first step to enrolling in credit courses to get a degree or certificate. After you apply, you will receive a letter in the mail which contains your student ID number and your email username that will allow you to access your online myFCC account. Prior to enrolling, prospective veteran and military students should speak with an Education Services Officer (ESO) or an FCC Veteran and Military Services representative. Please call 301-624-2836 to set up an appointment. You will need this information for each step of the enrollment process.
 

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your qualifications for federal and state aid, institutional grants, work study options, and student loans.

FCC operates with open admissions by offering admittance to all students who apply to the College. Some areas of study have additional, program-level admissions requirements. Selective admissions programs include: NursingRespiratory CareSurgical Technology, and the Honors College.
 

Recognizing that not everyone arrives with the same educational background, and not everyone is ready for the same level of math and English classes, there are a few things you will need to do to help us to successfully place you academically.
 

To comply with the Maryland College and Career Readiness Act of 2013 and the Academic Placement and Assessment Procedure of FCC, the College requires that:
 

  • Upon entering the College, all new students, unless otherwise exempted, must complete all mathematics, reading, writing, and skills placement tests before enrolling in developmental or credit courses.
  • Upon entering the College, all new students who are seeking a degree must file a degree plan that is developed in consultation with an academic advisor.
  • Upon reaching 24 credits, all new students must have completed developmental courses and the first college-level English and math courses required by their degree plan.


If you are seeking non-credit continuing education courses for professional development, skill building, or personal enrichment, visit Continuing Education & Workforce Development (CEWD) Registration.

2Test

All new students must complete placement tests in mathematics, reading, writing, and skills placement before enrolling in developmental or credit courses. In special circumstances, the College may exempt placement test requirements for students with previous college credits, grades, or test scores that meet specific criteria.

In order to determine if you need to take placement tests you will need to submit the following documents:
  1. High school transcript and previous college transcripts
  2. College entrance exam scores from SAT and/or ACT
  3. Advanced Placement (AP) test scores and International Baccalaureate (IB) test scores


These documents will determine which placement tests you are required to take, the courses you should register for, and/or the courses you are eligible to receive credit for based on previous grades or scores.

 

FCC administers the ACCUPLACER test to ensure the appropriate placement level for all new students. Students are advised to prepare for the ACCUPLACER test as they would any other exam to confirm accurate placement by academic skill level. For more information about the ACCUPLACER and academic placement and assessment, visit the Testing Center.



To be exempt from the ACCUPLACER, you need to have earned the following scores within the past five years:

SAT Score
  • Reading: 480
  • Math: 530
ACT Score
  • English: 21
  • Reading: 21
  • Math: 21
AP Score
  • English Language & Composition: 3 or better
  • English Literature & Composition: 3 or better
  • Calculus or Statistics: 3 or better
IB Score
  • Language: A
  • Literature: SL or HL and/or Language A
  • Language & Literature: SL or HL
  • Mathematics: SL or HL and/or Further Math

3See Advisor

New credit students seeking a degree are required to consult an advisor to develop a degree plan. New students should schedule a consultation after completing the admissions and testing steps, and activating a myFCC account.

 

All new students planning to attend FCC for their first college experience will participate in the ROAR program, which includes:
 

  • an online orientation, presented by FCC students to prepare you for college
  • an on-campus meeting with an advisor to help you develop your academic plan
  • the registration lab where you'll learn how to enroll yourself into classes


Learn more and start the ROAR process here.

 

Dual enrollment and transfer students should submit official college transcripts from previous institutions to the Registration & Records Office for official transfer credit evaluation prior to meeting with an academic advisor.

 

Walk-in advising is available in the Counseling & Advising Office. You can also send a message to email advising via your myFCC email account. When you meet with an advisor, be sure to bring your photo ID and any documents that might be helpful (unofficial transcripts, test results, ACT/SAT scores).
